Joachim Soleman, Nouvelle lumiere de Medecine du Mistere, 1721
Hogart MS 215
The title-page bears the date 1830. The standard and lavender papers are interleaved and appear contemporary. The ink on the white leaves has in most cases badly seeped through from each side to the other. There are various headlines and titles in a watery red ink, marginal notes, and occasional words in mirror-writing.
